Awesome cases will be selected by our editorial board to be featured on the Radiopaedia.org homepage (see featured cases) as well as to be promoted on our various social media channels (e.g. Facebook and Twitter).
The "Collector" achievement on your profile page reflects the number of public cases that you have published and that have been approved during the moderation process.
How to upload cases
Depending on your situation, you may be able to use one of our uploaders.
Alternatively, you can do everything you need through your browser (watch the following video).
Good cases are vital for Radiopaedia.org. All articles need good images from great cases. However, cases are so much more than just a simple image to demonstrate a single point. They allow you to summarise patient presentation, symptomatology, image findings and then link that back to articles that are relevant. They can have questions, scrolling stacks, multiple studies and much much more.
Types of cases
Currently, there are three types of cases: draft, public and unlisted.
Draft cases are there for you to work on, prior to 'publishing them'. All users have access to 10 draft cases at any time. Read more about draft cases.
Public cases are by far the most common. They are visible to all users and can be used in playlists and articles. There is no limit whatsoever to the number of public cases each user can have. Read more about public cases.
Unlisted cases are there for you to use in special circumstances. They are not visible to other users, but you can still share them easily with others. All users have access to 10 unlisted cases at any time. Read more about unlisted cases.
